"Well, I made this cake for the 4th and it was a big hit with the grandkids. It was gone in no time! The chocolate cake was good with the fruit and I am sure yellow or white cake would be great too."

"I am going to make this for the 4th of July this year. My grandkids love fruit so they will get a kick out of this flag cake. I am going to use a chocolate cake mix instead of the yellow."

"My wife made this for our Memorial Day get-together we had. She did a great job and everyone commented on it. I want her to make another one to take to my folks for the 4th of July but this time I want her to use chocolate cake."
